This film was part of an effort by striking immigrant wool mill workers. Two of the seven reels from their efforts have been lost, however, "The Prologue", a dramatization about the lot of an immigrant family working in the mills, is complete.

Production costs for the film were payed primarily by the American Communist Party.

From the AFI/Thomas Brandon Collection at the Library of Congress, copied at 19fps from a 35mm print.
